Adopt an Animal: Honor your family and unleash your creativity!

The Children’s Creativity Museum is offering a unique opportunity for San Francisco families. Imagine gifting your child or loved one with the opportunity to name his or her own Children’s Creativity Carousel animal, while also supporting creativity and innovation.

The Carousel Campaign allows individuals and businesses the opportunity to sponsor or adopt an animal on the historic 107-year-old Children’s Creativity Carousel. You may select any name for your animal and a nameplate will adorn the animal’s pedestal for an entire year! This is a wonderful opportunity to honor your family or a specific family member while also unleashing the creativity of your children by allowing them to choose the name!

About the Carousel:
The Children’s Creativity Carousel marks the entrance to CCM at Yerba Buena Gardens and is a symbol of both the past and the future. One of only 75 original Looff Carousels left in the United States and the only one with an intact menagerie of animals, the Children’s Creativity Carousel features jumping horses with real horsehair tails, galloping camels, rams, giraffes, and gilded chariots. The Children’s Creativity Museum has been entrusted with ensuring that the Carousel will continue to ignite the imaginations of kids and adults from San Francisco and around the world.

There has never been a better time and a greater need to support the future of the Children’s Creativity Museum. Your adoption will ensure the longevity of the Children’s Creativity Museum as an inclusive community space that reflects the City’s rich cultural diversity and technological innovation, and a leader in teaching youth creativity and innovation!
